Today marked the first day of the SIA Snowshow at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colo. OnTheSnow was on the floor at SIA checking out the best skis, hottest apparel and sweetest tech for next ski season.

Below are some highlights from our first day at SIA and there will be plenty more on the way in the coming days. In the meantime, make sure to keep up with the latest from your favorite manufacturers on Twitter at @OnTheSnow. Enough with the intro, here's the gear...
